No. 12 North Carolina spoils Beamer's finale in OT, 30-27
BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) Marquise Williams hit Quinshad Davis with a 5-yard pass in overtime and No. 12 North Carolina spoiled coach Frank Beamer's final home game at Virginia Tech with a 30-27 victory on Saturday.
The Tar Heels (10-1, 7-0 ACC, No. 17 CFP) won their 10th in a row and clinched the Coastal Division title, and did so despite blowing a 14-point lead in the final three minutes of regulation.
Virginia Tech (5-6, 3-4) tied the game on Michael Brewer's 4-yard, fourth-down pass to Isaiah Ford with 1:07 remaining, but the Hokies had to settle for a field goal to begin the overtime.
Williams then hit Ryan Switzer for 18 yards on the Tar Heels' first play, and after two runs and a false start penalty put them at the 5, Williams hit Davis, who beat Terrell Edmunds in the right corner of the end zone.
